Genesis 6:13 So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. 14 So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out.

When rain was a foreign concept in the world, God instructed Noah to build an ark before the rain. As we know, it was designed to save his family and a pair of all the animals on the earth. It took Noah around 100 years to build that ark.

Notice something. The Bible never mentions how Noah received provision. It didn’t say he farmed part-time for food, crafted items for trade, or did anything for income. From what we know, Noah, being the man of the house and having a wife and three children, worked on the ark day in and day out for 100 years.

Based on these 100 years of Noah, what can we say about God? What it says is, when we fulfill the purpose God has for us, provision is automatic. Matthew 6:33 says it this way, Seek first the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added unto us.

When it comes to God’s purpose for our lives, it doesn’t matter how out of the box it seems to others; when we fulfill His will for our lives, God guarantees all our provision will be met.

Matthew 6:31-32 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.
